the thought originated. in the mind of mr. mandela and bishop desmond tutu, it was the recognition from our side and on the side of mr. mandela and his colleagues that to continue our hostilities and acrimony would mean the destruction of this country and would lead to a civil war that no one would wish to go. >> reporter: as botha recalls, mandela's message of peace predated the '90s in the early '60s following years of action against apartheid he made his famous speech at the dock that would lead to his imprisonment. >> he said, i afford against white domination. and i afford against black domination. i have challenged the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. and then he concluded by saying, this is an ideal i hope to live for and to achieve. but if needs be, it is an ideal for which i'm prepared to die. >> reporter: mandela was an icon. but he had a very human side, too. as botha was to find out when he reached out to mandela during his presidential years. >> mandela is no angel. no humans are angels. his secon

. he reminded me of my grandfather. had uncanny resemblance. i told him that. i said, mr. mandela, i showed him a picture of my grandfather, he said, we're all brothers. my grandfather had passed away by then. it was just his constant humility. and i think one of the things that i look at the nexus of the anc and naacp our struggle that was continuing in of -- going on in south africa there is a necks us that really made us as brothers and we had such an 'feign tee with him. affinity with him. he meant a lot to me. >> i think we would miss an opportunity if we treated everything that he accomplished, everything he was as something that we look back on. as the past. in fact he left homework for us to do. he left -- not only in south africa but also for us here. how do we relate. the things that we get upset about that we don't speak to people about. the fights we have, look what he forgave. look how he reconciled. the truth of the reconciliation in south africa still one of the most amazing things that's ever happened in the world. to face their accused and do something better. >> he

told bishop tutu i disagree with you and with mr. mandela because tutu is that way as well. but i respect you. so why can't you guys in the republican party bring that to the the fore? >> well, nelson mandela stood up against a great injustice and willing to pay a huge price for that and that's the reason he mourned today because of that struggle that he performed. you are right, what he was advocating for was not necessarily the right answer, but he was fighting against some great injustice. and i would make the argument that, you know, we have a great injustice going on right now in this country with an everincreasing size of government that is taking over and controlling people's lives. and obamacare is front and center in that. i agree with talking points, your points earlier which is the center focus of the 2014 election, must be obamacare. and all of its aspects and the cool thing about obamacare is it is not only bad for the economy and bad for people's health. it's also bad for freedom of conscience. it's bad on a whole variety of issues that will energize all across ameri
